This video showcases some of the modeling methods that should be used to insure the best performance from SOLIDWORKS assembly files.
- [Instructor] When working in SOLIDWORKS assemblies,…it's always good to follow the best modeling practices…we can to increase our performance as well.…Let's take a look at a sample assembly…I've got put together here.…So this is a custom assembly somebody put together,…and we can see here that it's got a lot of patterns,…it's got a lot of different components,…some purchase parts, some edited parts,…and if we take a quick snapshot,…there's all kinds of business going on inside…for the internals of this system as well.…
You can see it's also taking a little while,…graphically, to load.…So all right, we're going to undo that…and see what we can do to speed it up.…Looking at the file right now,…we see that it's 8,743 kilobytes.…I'm going to go ahead and suppress all these local patterns.…These are just bolts.…So if we isolate, we can take a look at them.…And there's a couple ways you can do this.…You can right-click and dissolve the pattern,…that'll keep the feature there but suppress the pattern.…
That can be good if patterns are slowing down…
